Leafs Trade Martin Skoula to New Jersey

maple leafsThe Toronto Maple Leafs have traded defenceman Martin Skoula to New Jersey for a 5th round draft pick in 2010.

Say what you will about Martin Skoula, but he never faltered in a Leafs uniform. No Maple Leaf in history, outside of Olaf Kolzig, committed as few errors.

Farewell, Martin Skoula. You will be missed dearly by the Barilkosphere.

why would they trade ponikarovsky for skoula, then trade him for a 5th round pick? that is one of the worst trades ever. ponikarovsky was a good player and getting better. dumb move leafs. the leafs are going to get way worse now. what is the chance of gaining a good player that is going to be good even in the next 5 years from a 5th round pick? dumb dumb dumb

the got the smae player back on younger and cheaper plus a 5th rounder. They weren't going to sign Poni - he'll end up with a contract like Stajan just signed and thats too much.

On the other side the Martin Skoula era was one of the best ever. The never lost with him on the roster.
